It is important to have a day dedicated to your friends to make them feel loved. Celebrating it helps to improve and strengthen the bond between two or more friends.

Friendship Day History

It was created by Hallmark as a marketing effort to sell more cards. This marketing tactic became widely popular and was followed by other brands to sell more. Companies came up with customized packaging to commemorate Friendship day and increase their profits. In the end, people realized that it is a gimmick to sell more inventory. The holiday lost its true authenticity and almost died. But the tradition of celebrating Friendship Day came back again in Asia where many people saw it as an opportunity to increase their social outstanding and spread love one way or another. Companies started manufacturing customized items for friendship day again.

However, it was widely successful the second time as people found it extremely heartening to celebrate their beautiful friendships and exchange gifts at an event other than birthdays. Many people still celebrate it by exchanging gifts, cards, flowers, or chocolates on Friendship Day to show appreciation for their friends.
